Compare that against the common theme of REBELLION that runs rampid among the popular culture that many (NOT ALL) Black kids grow up in. What is right is now wrong. If you are a "SNITCH" you have broken some code. This benefits THE CRIMINALS in our community and suppresses the INNOCENT people attempting to live in peace and safety.
Just out of curiosity, do you ever have anything good to say about the black community? You seem to do alot of nitpicking in order to hold the worst of us up as a poster child for blacks everywhere. The above statement is completely false. Not "snitching" is a criminal behaviour, not a black behaviour. You find it in all criminal orginizations, from petty street gangs all the way to international syndicates. And, I shouldn't have to add, all races and cultures.

Do actually know anyone who does that? We all know that white people get away with things that we can't. I don't know anyone who beats that dead horse. I do, however, know people who use it as a reason to be better than the white people around them that seem to get away with everything.
It seems to me that you're a little unclear on your context. You sound as if you can't find any positive examples. If that's the case, I think your just not looking hard enough.
